Waiting on Wednesday: Ink

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

InkTitle: Ink by Amanda Sun
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publish Date: June 5, 2013
Genre: Mythology, Fantasy

Goodreads Summary: I looked down at the paper, still touching the tip of my shoe. I reached for it, flipping the page over to look.

Scrawls of ink outlined a drawing of girl lying on a bench.

A sick feeling started to twist in my stomach, like motion sickness.

And then the girl in the drawing turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine.

On the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka, Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.

Then there’s gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer. But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the wrong people notice, they'll both be targets.

Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.

Why am I waiting on Ink? You guys know that I love mythology and there isn’t nearly enough Japanese mythology in YA books these days. This book sounds awesome and I am VERY excited about it. What books are you waiting on?

Omg yes yes yes! I've been dying to read this one since I heard about it a few months ago. I mean, how could I say no to a book with an Asian love interest?! ;-)
